London 2012 Final Medal Count: United States Wins Most Golds And Overall

With the final events of the 2012 Summer Olympics wrapping up on Sunday, it is time to review the final medal count for the games.

The United States had already locked up the most gold medals and the most medals overall, but just for good measure they added one more in the men's basketball tournament after their win over Spain on Sunday.

A very interesting stat is that over half of the medals won by the United States were won by women in various events. This is the first time that has happened.

Here is a video that breaks down the medal count in all of its 8-bit glory and a celebration for the United States that will move Sega Genesis fans.
